15 Small-But-Chic Earrings That Pack A Major Style Punch

Don't get us wrong — we love drama (when it applies to our accessories, that is). But, every now and then, all of the statement necklace, arm parties, and rings-on-every-finger start to feel a little overwrought, and we just want to simplify and start fresh.
If you're also craving a little zen minimalism in your jewelry box, you'll love what we've gathered up for you: a bounty of low-key, elegant stud earrings that run the gamut from edgy and cool to dainty and feminine. The common thread? These babies are timeless, simple, and understated enough that you could wear them to work every day. And if you decide to do just that, we won't judge. (No more drama, remember?)
